LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. – The first month of 2017 marked a period of robust home sales for Neal Communities (NealCommunities.com), southwest Florida’s premier, private homebuilder, which reported a total of 110 sales in January.

The neighborhoods with the most sales in January were Grand Palm with 13 sales, the new community of Avalon with nine sales, Boca Royale Golf & Country Club and Milano with eight sales, and Silverleaf with seven sales.
